This place was very nice and the food was really good. Just wish there were more items on in their menu. The drinks were awesome. The atmosphere was pleasant.

Seated quickly and promptly greeted by a male server who asked for a drink order. Quickly followed by a female server, I believe her name was Marie, who said she would be in charge of our service. We ordered the onion rings. They came out quickly and were the tallest stack of onion rings we'd ever seen! Very tasty. Loved... More

I try to avoid chain restaurants, but sometimes we break the rule. We recently had dinner at J. Alexander's at Town Center - everything about the evening was excellent. First, we were greeted with a huge smile by the hostess - this always gets the evening off to a wonderful start. My Grilled Salmon was huge and excellent, as was... More

I was somewhat disappointed. The presentation was great; but the food was just ok. For 3 for lunch it was over $100 (no alcohol) and I was just not overly impressed with the food.

We were treated to impeccable service and a broad range of choices on the menu. Definitely have the onion rings to start. The salads are fresh and delicious. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and melted in our mouth. You will enjoy your meal and will definitely return again and again. I know we will.

This place offers excellent meals and is capable of catering to the busy business executive. Everyone of the meals are exceptional. Be sure to same room for the carrot cake. By far it is the best.

I've loved J. Alexander's for years and it was my go to place when I lived in TN. This location is also very convenient but with all the other options in town I've only popped in twice. I've tried so many menu items over the years but my go to is the French Dip with fries (good gracious these fries... More

The Ahi Tuna Steak is amazing. Perfectly prepared with Tor dipping sauce. One of my favorites. They also serve warm bread but you have to ask for it, they don't automatically bring it to your table.

Went for lunch on Monday and apparently it was a weekly special. Outstanding. I sat at the bar, service was great, and the meal was promptly served. Can't wait to go back there.

This was our first visit to this restaurant, we are from out of town. We found the atmosphere very relaxing. Our lunch was good, food was hot and fresh. Service was great. Everyone enjoyed their entrees of Fish Tacos, Crab cakes, Shrimp Taco's, We felt the crab cakes were over priced with a huge mound of French fries hiding the... More
